There are probably a 1000 factors that can influence your success and happiness in life.
being at the right time in the right place,
There is one though that I find over and over again to be absolutely ESSENTIAL. At times more important than all above.
What is inspiration exactly?
Inspiration is a feeling of enthusiasm you get from someone or something, which gives you new and creative ideas. It is a feeling that gets you charged up and enables you to get things going.
Inspiration can come from the outside. It can be a thought-provoking story, an idea, a person whom you admire or simply a desire to do something worthwhile.
Inspiration also comes from within. Look within yourself, examine your beliefs and goals. What keep you going in life? What kind of a life you want? What do you really want? What is your “why”?
DO NOT underestimate inspiration. Without inspiration, we’d all be trying to solve same problems day after day. Inspiration gives us motivation to rise above, see the “big picture”, be creative and stay on track to achieving our goals.
Here are some ways to stay inspired from an article called “49 Ways to Get Inspired”:
- Spend more time around art.
- Read biographies of lives greatly lived.
- Celebrate how far you’ve come versus the distance still to go.
- Accept the project you fear the most.
- Stop watching the news.
- Spend the first 20 minutes of your day in exercise
- Visit a new city.
- Discover a new restaurant.
- Call your parents.
- Use social media to uplift, encourage, teach and share.
- Join a mastermind group.
- Spend the first 90 minutes of the next 90 days focused on your single largest opportunity.
- Remember that for every one masterpiece, Picasso painted 1000 paintings.
- Don’t listen to naysayers.
- Live like you mean it.
- Finally, inspiration isn’t everything. There are days when you don’t feel inspired and even like trying to get inspired. That’s where the power of habit kicks in and you just have to work hard, or maybe give yourself a day off.
What would you put on that list? Stay inspired guys ♥️
